Florida MPO Advisory Council Transportation Revenue Study

The MPOAC is currently conducting a two-year study effort to develop recommendations for addressing the issues of sustainable revenue for surface transportation capital investments and transportation operations in Florida. The objective of the initiative, Analysis of Transportation Revenue Options for Florida, is to develop policy recommendations and suggested legislative approaches to implement a set of revenue measures that address the transportation funding needs in Florida. Recommendations will be provided for the short, medium and long term time horizons. The effort relies on previous work defining surface transportation needs and focuses on the identification of sustainable, innovative and politically acceptable measures to assist in meeting the mobility needs for Floridians.

At its April 26, 2012 meeting, the MPOAC voted to transmit information to the legislature and Governor on the State’s unfunded transportation needs and the 14 options to reduce the funding shortfall and endorsed the top six revenue options for initiation of legislative action to implement those items.
